Flower-making demonstration by former Royal Worcester flower-maker Avril Pulley
Avril started work at Royal Worcester in 1967 making china flowers with Cornish clay. She made life size flowers as well as flowers for figurines and birds. After 11 years at the factory Avril left to decorate wedding cakes with sugar flowers, using the same skills and techniques. She now works with artisan modelling paste and demonstrates the intricate skills of flower making. You can witness flowers as they spring to life from the clay though delicate formation and shaping and see how Avril sensitively enhances the colours whilst listening to her tales of working at Royal Worcester.
We are also pleased to provide three different refreshment packages each of which is served on our very best Royal Worcester china, for more details click here. If you would like something a little different I should be pleased to talk to our caterers and obtain prices and fresh menus. We can for example provide tea and coffee on arrival, afternoon tea, soup and sandwiches or hot lunches!
In addition, the Museum Shop offers an ever changing range of present day, vintage and antique Royal Worcester ‘made in England’, at very reasonable prices.
Our favourite quote from Henry Sandon, who frequently features on the BBC Antiques Road Show, is that visiting the museum is his “Ideal Day Out!” and we very much hope that we can offer your party a day that equals his enjoyment!
This demonstration includes standard entry to the Museum and free coach parking. All talks and demonstrations must be pre-booked and are subject to availability.
